Aereos, Inc., an innovative global aircraft solutions provider, announces that Aereos Interior Solutions (AIS), one of its five divisions, has achieved another aviation first with the receipt of testing results confirming a high level of antimicrobial effectiveness from an independent microbiological testing laboratory. The commercially available antimicrobial silver ion technology* built into Aereos’ high-touch interior products have been tested over a 24-hour period and certified as greater than 99.8% effective against microbes.

  • Provide long lasting protection that doesn’t wear out or wash off
  • Reduce odor and staining causing microbes on high-touch interior surfaces
  • Reduce cross–contamination from surface to surface
  • Retain color and protection throughout each layer of the products
  • Certified greater than 99.8% effective against microbes
  • BioCote® is certified by HACCP International and is food contact approved by the FDA (Food and Drug Administration)
